Dancing Cy(i)phers: Hip Hop's Embodied Expression


As a symposium and workshop offering, Dancing Cyphers: Hip Hop's Embodied Expression will bring together dance communities interested in hip hop dance.  The event will delve into hip hop dance’s history, culture, and the scholarship around its global impact and ancestral connections to specific African dance traditions. Panel discussions and master classes led by distinguished dance artists-- Shabba Doo of the Original Lockers (Locking), Ejoe Wilson Henry Link and Buddah Stretch of New York’s Elite Force Crew  (Hip Hop and House), Oakland native, Traci Bartlow of Starchild Entertainment (Lindy Hop/Swing and Hip Hop), and Oakland native, Darrin Hodges of Oakland’s Gentlemen of Production (Boogaloo) -- will give participants a glimpse of the cultural and socio-political-economic landscape from which hip hop and other street dance forms now under that umbrella (freestyle, club dance, breakin', locking, popping, krumping, turfing, boogaloo, etc.) emerged regionally in African American communities.
